I do not know how I missed this thread for so long, but here is my modest contribution:
Not modest, Slobodan. The first in particular is a cracker!

I like them all but the fourth one, and that one only because the wide angle lens creates an unnatural bend to the tree trunks.  The last one looks like it was made post-forest-fire; would be interesting to make another image there six months or a year later.

all of those are panoramic/mosaic stitches, including the one looking straight up at the trees above.  The last one was taken above Sedona on a plateau where there had been a forest fire two years before, so things weren't recovering very quickly. I still loved seeing the black gnarly trunks against the clear blue sky.  Thanks for the comment.

fike - on an odd whim, some captions came to mind -

#1 "cocktail party of strangers"
#2 " The dance" -  reminds me of some dance party shots from college
#4 " Druid circle"

nice compositions!

They are Moreton Bay Figs and are in the Domain which is very close to the Sydney CBD. There was an uproar when they chopped down 5 trees a half a dozen years ago. They are very big trees though and they can drop branches which can be very big and heavy as shown by the mature tree shown below. Note the two missing branches on the tree which probably are a result of preventative measures.



The flying foxes love the figs and unfortunately distribute the seed all over the place. I ended up having one growing in my backyard and it cost quite a bit of money to get rid of it.

Beautiful trees.  They remind me a little of the live oaks growing in the southern US.  There's an old tree at the Alamo in San Antonio that has metal plates and cables to keep some of the branches from breaking off...

Something a bit different from my usual dark, moody, b&w landscapes... a bit of impressionistic influence:

Timo,

It's nice to see your work here on this thread, which is one of my favorites.
These are very different from your usual landscapes, but I like them a lot.

Timo,
#1 and #2 rotated 90 degrees clockwise powerful for me...these snags just keep giving, and in many ways are every bit as much alive as the breathing trees...like them!

Here are some images from last fall from a Horseman 617 camera using Velvia 50 film.

I hope you find them interesting.
